Hi,

I have the following scenario,

I have a non database "multirecord" block ( 5rows fixed without scrollbar)

I have created one Radio group with five radio buttons against each of these 5 rows.

Now, I display total expenses in thie form week(to_char(expense_date,IW) wise as seen beloew,
Week     Amount   Radio button
1        100       RB1
2         200      RB2
3         100      rb3
4         300      rb4
5         400      rb5

Now, idea is when user say selects rb2 then automatically it goes to another block and selects all expenses in that week for which Week 2 totals to 100.

My requirements,

1. I want to highlight the current row . So if I select RB2, complete Week 2 should be highlighted with a visual attribute

2. Which ever RB I choose that row should get highlighted and the previous one should go back to default.

Now, I have created everything only funtionality one and two do not happen. I am not able to link the Radio button with the Current record. i.e I am not able to associate RB2 with Week 2. and so on. I was able to do this with a checkbox not, able to do it with RB.

Please help

thanks,
Sunil

Okay let me rephrase this,

I have 5 row multirecords non database block. I want to add 5 radio buttons in front of that,

the 5 rows denote 5 weeks in a month. and expenses in the five weeks.

I need to syncronize the five buttons with the multireocrd block. Such that if I select radio button 1. Row one is selected.

If I select RB2, row two is selected.

If I select RB3 row three is selected.

so on so forth.

thanks,

Why not use a checkbox which you place on the 'block' as a non-database item?

Alternatively, use a 'radio_group' with a single Radio Button and place it on the block being displayed. Then when the Radio Button is selected the 'line'/record is automatically selected.

You can then highlight the row using the 'Current Record Visual Attribute Group' property of the block.

Thanks David,

I tried that option. There is one thing though. At the time of populating that block. I want to default the current weeks radio button. So if I have one radio button in the Radio group. Is it possible. Do I have to use the Current row attribute ? There after which ever Radio button I select that row should get highlighted.

Thanks in advance.

Radio buttons are difficult in that when you 'select' one it is not possible to 'turn it off' except by selecting another one.

Try creating a second 'radio button' in the 'radio group' and set 'Visible' to 'No'. Then when you select a radio button on another record, EITHER loop through all the rows and set the value of any 'on' button to that of the hidden 'off' button OR store in a control item the row number of the row that has the 'on' button'. Then when another row is selected, get the stored value, update the stored value with this row number, go to the 'other' row', turn its button 'off', and then come back.
